#OIE is Online Intercultural Exchange (O'Dowd et al) a means of connecting language learners using technology across countries in order to better suport their understanding of the challenges of communicating clearly and succesfully across cultures . If practitioners are to be effective in supporting this sort of activity as it enters the mainstream we need to increase the poace at which educators increase their familiarity with computer mediated communication, an area where students are already generally more familiar that teaching staff.
